KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Several local groups joined in hosting a community outreach event at Swope Park on Saturday.
Things like dental check ups, clothign and job counseling were available to Kansas City’s poor for free.
It was just one of dozens of stops for the Convoy of Hope along it’s 50-state tour.
“We even do haircuts, family portraits, some things that would make the budget a little tighter. We want to help them get ahead for the next month,” said Gina Hanna.
The events are aimed at helping the 46 million Americans currently living in poverty. That’s the largest number of Americans on record living in poverty based on U.S. Census Bureau findings.
